is john boehner. he was last seen in washington when he was re-elected speaker of the house. there are reports he and the house gop are at an annual retreat in williamsburg, yet conservatives like hugh hewitt are calling him a milk carton republican because he's gone missing on several very important debates. do you know where he is? >> you know, i have not personally seen this man, john boehner, but i have heard of him. i know who he is vaguely. i think he's the guy that had the most miserable, unpleasant speakership in the history of the republic, and it was because he had these conservative freshmen who came in all excited to undo the government, and they didn't understand that as speaker his job is to not undo the government. so he's had this problem where he can't please conservatives like hugh hewitt because they want him to champion real conservative principles but he can't get re-elected in his district, and republicans can't win on a national level if they champion those same values. i think right now boehner has chosen to just go quiet and sort of back away from th
of stuff that people can come after you with. kind of the backdrop here is that house speaker john boehner has had some hiccups or headaches lately. it started late last year when house republicans struggled over how to deal with the george w. bush tax cuts. the house wanted them all extended for everybody. democrats are never on board. president obama was never going to be on board with the idea. so john boehner struggled in that situation, even coming up with an alternative plan for extending tax breaks for anyone making less than $1 million a year. he had to pull from the courthouse. so that was. a was. the next day, he also -- not the next day. excuse me, on january 1, they came back and finally agreed to raise tax rates for those incomes of people making $400,000 a year. that was a tough bill and proposal for him to put forward to, just because taxes went up at the end of the day. the next day he came back and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him
house is for the worse. mr. obama and john boehner are barely on speaking terms. host: that is the "wall street journal's" take on what is ahead for the second term for president obama. then the "baltimore sun" -- host: so that vote taking place on wednesday in the house. about our coverage, here is the "baltimore sun" this morning. they note in here -- host: we're getting your thoughts on the second term and the inaugural address. beverly, north carolina, democratic caller. good morning. caller: his speech was wonderful. and i think now, at last, he has come into himself. four years ago, his speech was mostly about -- we will just say he came to office believing that he could join people together, that there were no blue or red states, just the united states. well, republicans surely through what i call a monkey wrench into that. so i really believe now that he changes his strategy and he believes and sees diversity. he's going to tackle it. i think he is now going to fight for the democratic legacy, for people with social security and medicare. he is going to be himself now. that is wh
and john boehner in a back room, and we just sit around. >> so much of the disillusionment you hear from members who feel they're going to make a difference is exactly what you're talking about. and so much of the infighting is really not so much between the parties, while there's plenty of that, there is such a frustration between house and senate. they openly knock each other in the hallways because they operate differently. and we have this whole sort of filibuster battle going on in the senate. the rules and how do things get through. and on the house side over and over again, there's this weary sense of they've passed some things. they may not be popular everywhere, but they did pass a budget. so what they're trying to do with this no budget, no pay is to sort of turn up the screws on the senate. and so republicans hoping to not get the blame for some of these fights are trying to focus a light on the senate not passing a budget which most people don't even realize has happened. >> i get your point, though. it's got to be frustrating to see the big debates get resolved in this backr
-of-living adjustments. john boehner and republicans decided they want to have an argument over the debt ceiling, because of the new year we will be better positioned. they quickly have realized that is not going to be the lever they thought it would be. host: you have covered three presidents, clinton, bush, and now president obama. people say the political divide between these branches is stronger now than it has been in years. you agree or disagree? guest: i absolutely agree. host: why/ guest: i think it is a building that has been taking place frankly since the past couple administrations. it was the war in iraq. for the republicans, the government spending. it is also the election system and the way we run our primaries. we have a more ideological- purified house of representatives than we have had in a very long time. that is because some people would argue redistricting, as well, which in the past election both parties to it. in the states where democrats are not in control they redraw the districts to make the majority democrats. the republican side as well. this is the first time republicans hav
on this issue. >>> all right, back to domestic politics. speaker john boehner laid out his strategy for house republicans in a tuesday speech to the repon society, a moderate republican group. >> we're expected over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration, as they attempt to annihilate the republican party. and let me just tell you, i do believe that is their goal. to just shove us into the dustbin of history. >> boehner also said that he had to give former college football coach and espn commentator lou holtz a pep talk after obama's inauguration. >> last night, i get a three-page text from my good friend, lou holtz, who must have watched state of the union and then he watched all that blabber on tv last night. so about 9:30, i get this three-page text. i'm done, finished, the country's over with, we're not doing this again. i've already had this conversation with lou about nine or ten days after the election. he's moaning and groaning, and i said, lou, will you stop it, we're americans, we'll figure this out. and i just spent 15 minutes giving lou holtz a pep talk. >> well
as he is being led to the entrance to the west front. john boehner, the speaker of the house, four years ago in 2009 was merely the house minority leader, now the leader of republicans in the house of representatives. there is the crowd on the national mall, the vice president. in the foreground, members of the supreme court. >> i guess there's no standard hat for the supreme court members. justice scalia has that kind of large beret kind of thing, and then justice breyer right beside him, something like a bellhop's hat, isn't it? i mean, how do you -- >> many descriptions out there. >> style it, kind of come up with a new hat. >> there's the chief justice, john roberts jr. and here are the ruffles and flourishes from the army trumpeteers announcing the president of the united states. >> announcer: ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states, barack h. obama, escorted by jean hard win bore vits, terrance w. gainer, house sergeant at arms paul irving, chairman of the congressional committee on ceremonies, senator charles schumer, senator lamar alexander, the speaker of the ho
john kerry's nomination to secede her. her testimony wednesday was forceful and sparked some potential early peeks at 2016 fights. >>> republican reset, with a short-term debt ceiling deal in motion, speaker boehner and paul ryan talk tough on the party's path forward. this morning, we'll talk to another top house republican, georgia's tom price, about the challenges ahead. >>> and the 2012 campaign saw ron paul's supporters get inside the nominating system to buck the establishment. now party leaders might face a fight on new rules put in place at the convention, to shore up the establishment and prevent the next insurgent, rand paul, say, in 2016? good morning from washington. it's thursday, january 24th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. apologies for the gravelly voice. i have beyonce's lip syncer standing by, shall i need her. anyway, let's get right to my first reads of the morning. secretary of state hillary clinton will be back on the hill today for what is likely to be her last appearance before congress as america's top diplomat. she'll introduce her likely s
sources? >> steve: okay, fine. >> brian: house speaker john boehner looking towards the president's second term and warning republicans about what he sees coming. listen. >> we're expecting over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to anilate the republican party. >> brian: as recommended by a cbs political director. is this unfortunately true and should americans expect more from both parties? fox news legal analyst peter johnson, jr. is here. is this unprecedented? does every party want to beat the other party to this degree? >> i think there is a visceral, intense dislike coming out of the white house for the republican party that's not unprecedented, but we probably haven't seen such an oppositional party dislike since the waning days of the nixon administration. there is something nixonian about it. i think what john boehner is saying is this is a call to action. this is a wake up call. this is almost a pull revere call saying, we're going to have issues going forward in the next 22 months and we've got to get the folks who are interested in the re
's comments, i think there are far reaching and might be unconstitutional. i helped john boehner and mitch mcconnell work hard to prevent him -- i hope john boehner and mitch mcconnell work hard to prevent him from doing whatever he wants. he cannot do what ever he wants. i think they should work together. it was a sad thing what happened on the east coast. that does not go to the root of the problem. people should not have guns, let's focus on them, not eliminating certain types of guns or clips. host: is there anything that the president said that you agree with? caller: he cannot use funding to study this because it is part of the constitution. i think that they should have some kind of universal system to monitor people that are near -- they are not right mentally or should not have guns. they should have a database. how much information they should capture -- these are all problems he should not do in two weeks for one week. he should talk with other people. congress should help as well. host: you mentioned you are an instructor. what is it that you teach? caller: economics and accoun
is a baltimore sun piece. also on page 6 of "the baltimore sun" is a picture of john boehner and says -- they show the speaker in a photo saying it would cut the deficit twice as fast as other plants. the speaker is also out there making a speech to the society. the headline basically says this -- his focus is basically to annihilate the republican party. here's a look at you to but. [video clip] >> from what we heard yesterday, it is pretty clear to me -- it should be clear to all you he knows he cannot do any of that as long as the house is controlled by republicans. we are expecting over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to annihilate the republican party. i do believe that is their goal. and just to shut us into the dustbin of history. host: these were remarks to the ripon society. they go on to write to that the transcripts or accurate, and noted that the speaker regularly attends the event. perhaps we will hear more about this in the days to come. a couple of more calls on the testimony yesterday. kevin is up now. an independent. caller: b
alexander, the wife of senator lamar alexander. and by debby boehner, wife of house speaker john boehner. sorry to interrupt you there. >> more recently, you may disagree with the content and the tone but no one will dispute the fact that george w. bush was aiming for the bleachers with his second inaugural with what he called his freedom speech which is -- in terms of projecting american force, moral and military around the world in the wake of 9/11 and the doctrine of preemptive military action. >> you knows the reference to lincoln, we talk about being in a divided america now. in many ways we are politically. but you think about lincoln and that inauguration, both of his, it was a different level. >> different level all together. he is involved in the conflict where half a million people would be killed, the end of channeled slavery. a lot is at stake. we're fighting now but not anywhere like that, thank god. >> we're about to see the introduction of the first lady of the united states, michelle obama. as you watched her grow in this role the last four years, what do you think? >> we
and the emergence once again of john boehner and eric cantor and their ability to block anything that he tries to get through congress. >> john boehner, who is just making his way right now to his seat at the inauguration ceremony. >> t know what percentage of vote he got to re-elect him? 100%. you know why? unlike newt gingrich who topple democratic speaker jim wright and tom foley, the democrats did not even field a candidate. in ohio, against john boehner, speaker of the house, his principal nemesis. then we wonder why he is so aggressive? see, this is where the problem is. what we need to focus on is, how we organize demands on president obama and the members of congress back home? there are only 536 of them. 650,000, men, women, and children in each congressional district. it is a fraction of those numbers, 1000, 2000, getting behind the kind of long overdue solutions in this country can begin to make it happen. you know what my motto is these days? we have got to realize it is a lot easier than we think. if we exaggerate the opposition as a reflection of our own self- imposed powerlessne
